Fluoridation makes us stupid and unhealthy

Cover image of Fluoride: Drinking Ourselves to Death?A recent Chinese study concluded that low dose sodium fluoride in drinking water diminishes IQ, especially among children. This is the twenty-fourth such international study with the same conclusion. Sodium fluoride has also been linked to reduced fertility and lower sperm counts
Fluoride is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic. Yet it is routinely added to the drinking water of  millions people in the US. We are given no choice.

This mass medication is justified for reasons of dental health but there is no scientific evidence to prove the benefits of fluoride. Indeed all the evidence points incontrovertibly to the harm caused by fluoride to human, plant and animal life.

Fluoridation has been abandoned or is banned throughout continental Europe, China and Japan. Nevertheless governments and health authorities in Britain, Ireland and elsewhere are determined to pursue a policy of mass fluoridation, using arguments that are based on flimsy scientific evidence and ignoring increasing public concern.

In this carefully researched and persuasively written book, Barry Groves has assembled an impressive body of evidence and opinion from throughout the world showing that the case for fluoridation of water is based on poor science and dogmatic ignorance rather than on any scientifically proven benefit to public health. His conclusions are truly alarming for everyone concerned with their own health, that of their families and of society in general.
